At Media Blasting by D&K, we understand that you may have questions about our services and how we can help you achieve your goals. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions we receive.

  • What is Media Blasting?
    Media blasting, also known as sandblasting, is a process of propelling abrasive media at a surface to remove contaminants, paint, coatings, or other substances. It is also used to prepare a surface for powder coating. Various different types of media are used depending on the project, the surface, and the desired effects.
  • What are the benefits of media blasting?
    Surface Preparation: Media Blasting is an effective way to remove rust, scale, paint and other contaminants from a surface. This prepares the surface for painting, priming, welding, or other operations. ​ Thorough Cleaning: Media blasting quickly and thoroughly removes surface contaminants without damaging the underlying substrate. ​ Improved Appearance: Media blasting can restore a surface to a uniform, attractive appearance. ​ Economical: Media blasting is cost-effective and can be used on a variety of surfaces. Environmentally Friendly: Media blasting is a non-toxic, non-destructive method of surface preparation. It does not produce hazardous waste or emissions.
  • What is the cost to get parts media blasted?
    There is not a set price for blasted parts, the pricing depends on the project itself and can depend on factors such as size, rust, paint, or other aspects that may go into the time it takes to blast the pieces.
  • Is Powder Coating the best finish for media blasted parts?
    Powder coating is an ideal finish for all parts alike, blasted or non-blasted. This is due to the armor-like nature of powder coating which provides more durability and resistance to impact, moisture, corrosion, chemicals and UV lighting. Powder coating is also a solvent-free, environmentally friendly finish that does not release VOC's (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere as compared to liquid paint.
  • Does Media Blasting create a rough finish?
    No, media blasting will not cause your parts to have a rough or bumpy finish.
  • What is used to sandblast?
    Our top-of-the-line commercial grade pressure blasters consist of a canister much larger than you would find on a model for personal use which is filled with an abrasive and pressurized to be forced out through the hose along with air when the trigger of the gun is pulled. The device can produce and withstand much higher pressure than smaller models, which allows it to quickly remove layers of paint and rust without using an excessive amount of media.
